Instagram is all about visuals and you can share the content relevant to your product. It is safe to say visual content drives engagement harder and faster than any other form of digital content. And for this reason, Instagram continues to rise rapidly in terms of popularity over any other social platform. In early 2017, Instagram announced its new multiple-image posting feature, also called “carousel”. You can post up to 10 photos in a slideshow or you can add an album. This is an exciting tool for brands and businesses. By using this feature you can maximize the engagement rate, purify storytelling, beautify your feed, and even optimize ad posting. According to WakeupData’s Instagram ads guide  a relatively new range of ad formats are Instagram dynamic ads which promote targeted products to customers who have browsed, added to cart or purchased items on their website or mobile app.

In order to use the carousel posting option, select the multiple image posting option, select your images and videos, and tap on the Next button to continue.

Since Instagram stories have had a more successful rate, the carousel will likely be a hit with users and evolve as more engage with it, rather than the unexcited reception to recent updates rolled out by Facebook and Twitter. You can use this option to help you get creative with your posts by using some of the following wonderful ideas;
